Youroo my slider awning is tall enough for me at 6'4" to stand under. However, the support arms are KILLERS. We like to put a picnic table under ours and I have several knots on my head from running headlong into those arms.
Travel safe

Yep, plenty high enough to walk under.
If you drop the awning arms down, they are somewhat low but no more so than the old manual awnings.

Awning hold down poles & brackets from TURBS or OC solves that problem!
Have them for both the main awning and the slide awning but if the winds get too high, the awnings should be retracted anyway.

I had a slide topper added at the dealership when we bought our 315BHK a couple weeks ago. When I was at the Vibe factory yesterday, the service techs were commenting on how good it is to have a slide topper. Even noticed the dealer forgot something on the install and told me how to fix it!

To me, having it just makes sense. Keeps that slide roof clean.
